Says He Did Not Know What He
Was Signing When He Re
ceipted for Henderson.
Saluda, November i8.-Sheriff Rho
den today gave out the following
statement to your correspondent in
reference to the W. L. Henderson
matter concerning which an article
appeared in the State of November
17. What follows is a verbatim state
ment by Sheriff Rhoden:
"Mr. N. G. Evans of Edgefield pre
sented to me a paper for my signa
ture stating that it was for the pur
pose of getting bail for W. L. Hen
'derson. I did not read the paper and
at his request signed it. Thereafter
this paper was presented to my son,
J. L. Rhoden, who is my deputy, for
him to affix the official seal of my
office. He affixed the seal thereto.
In reference to the reward said to
have been paid to Maj. R. S. Anderson
of Edgefield and the method by
which it was obtained I consider the
whole thing a fraud. In my opinion
there was never any reason for a re
ward for Henderson being asked for
as he had not made any effort to es
cape nor was he able to esc.pe of he
had wanted to. I did deputize a spec
ial constable to -take charge of Hen
derson while he was at the home of
Mr. J. B. Davis and sent the papers
to this special deputy by Mr. N. G.
Evans. This special constable refus
ed to act and the papers were return
ed to me. I then sent my son to Mr.
Davis' to take charge of Henderson
and guard him and Henderson was in
the custody of my son until Tuesday
evening when as stated in the Statc
of today by the Saluda correspondent
Henderson at his own request was
brought here where se has been since
and where he now is."

TILLMAN ON THE RESULT.

Trenton, November TS.-Senator
B. R. Tillman is taking life easy at
his home in Trenton. He is spend
ing most of the time out of doors,
giving directions as to his farming
operations, to the fattening of his
supply of hogs and the ordinary work
around the place. Whatever spare
time he has he devotes to his flowetI
garden and hot house.
-Most men have their fads, and the
doctors say that everyone ought to
have a fad to take the. mind off of the
serious things of life. Senator Till
man's fad is flowers. He has as fine
a collection of garden and hot house
flowers as can be found in this state.
In fact his place looks more like a
nursery than an ordinary farm house.
Senator Tillman is enjoying good
health. He is taking care of himself
and is in the best of spirits. He pro

Senator Tillman does not think
that it does good to talk about the
democratic catastrophe. He says that
there is no sense in talking about a
reorganization of the party, or any
thing else of that kind, but that the

Senator Tillman said that he had
spent a good deal of time during the
active days of the campaign in India
na and Illinois, and he was satisfied
that the Palmer and Buckner, or
gold democrats, all supported Parker,
that from six to eight hundred thous
and democrats who supported Bryan
four years ago voted for Roosevelt
in this election.
With the gold democrats in line
and with the democratic party down
to rock bottom, Senator Tillman sees
no use to talk of reorganizat'on at

is any possible good to come from

Senator Tilliman is of the opinion
that the race issue did not enter in
to the recent campaign. The republi
cans avoided it and the voters did not
conlsider it except in the south. He
does not think that any serious effort
will be made during the present ses
sion of congress to pass the Crum
packer law or to punish the south in
any way. He thinks that there will
be some talk along this line, but he is
satisfied that the republicans them
selves are afraid of it. He says that
if the race issue alone were pressed,
especially in the west and north, the
south would find a great many sym
palhizers, and he is satisfied that
nine-tenths of the northen and west
ern people sympathize with the south
in its race conditions and that most
of the other one-tenth who are not
in sympathy with the south on the
race question are from the New Eng
land states. He said that he had trav
elled a great deal within the last
year, especially in the west, and that

I asked Senator Tillman what he
thought about the ccnfirmation of
Dr. Crum. about -"ich considerable
has recently been said in the news
papers. He is of the opinion that
there is practically no good to cone
from continued fighting of the con
firmation of Dr. Crum and he is dis
posed now to leave the matter to
the republican majority of the senate.
He feels that he has done all that
he can do and that his position and
that of this state are well known.
He is somewhat inclined to think
that President Roosevelt may be so
thoroughly gratified with the flatter
ing vote that he has received that he
may decide to let up on the south,
and the president also must appre
ciate that the south alone stood out
against him more on account of the
race issue than anything else. Sen
ator Tillman thinks that if the presi
dent insists upon the confirmation of
Dr. Crum that the senate will confirm
him, and that therp will be practical
unanimity on the part of the republi
can majority, and that it will be en
tirely in deference to the president.
Whatever is done in this matter he
thinks will be done at the instance
of President Roosevelt, and there is
no use to do any further fighting.
